    Precomputed lunar distances
    From: C Roberts
    Date: 2005 Apr 10, 19:32 -0400

    In postings on this list , altitudes and azimuths were required for
    accurate calculations of distances between bodies. How can
    precomputed lunar distances be done as has been done for centuries??
    It would seem that almanac GHA and DEC are the only data available.
    This same calculation would be used for inter stellar distances for
    checking sextant calibrations. It has been said that the values in
    Bauer's book are wrong. In the lunar distance calculations this value
    which is used to proportion for GMT is calculated. Can precomputed
    values be used to avoid this ?
